Popcorn or stucco ceiling removal

  A popcorn ceiling or plaster ceiling, also known as cottage cheese ceiling or more accurately a stucco ceiling, is a term for a spray-on or paint-on ceiling treatment used from the late 1950s into the 1980s in American residential construction. It was the standard for bedroom and residential hallway ceilings for its bright, white appearance, noise reduction qualities and ability to hide imperfections, while kitchen and living rooms ceilings would normally be finished in smoother skip-trowel or orange peel texture for their higher durability and ease of cleaning.

  In early formulations it often contained white asbestos fibers. When asbestos was banned in ceiling treatments by the Clean Air Act of 1978 in the United States, popcorn ceilings fell out of favor in much of the country. However, in order to minimize economic hardship to suppliers and installers, existing inventories of asbestos-bearing texturing materials were exempt from the ban, so it is possible to find asbestos in popcorn ceilings that were applied through the 1980s. After the ban, popcorn ceiling materials were created using a paper-based or Styrofoam product to create the texture, rather than asbestos.

  One of the main reasons builders do popcorn ceilings now days is to avoid the time and labour of a proper mud job or drywall tapping job, so it’s not surprising you will never get a smooth surface underneath. The popcorn or stucco is to hide the fact it wasn't smooth ceiling in the first place. It’s just like an old kitchen or bath, it gives the house a dated appearance and some real estate agents would even agree with the fact that it reduces the house value. Probably the worst part of having popcorn ceiling g is that as time goes by it becomes really dusty, small particles will fall all around the house and this is probably not a good thing for kids or people with allergies.
